What equipment will be powering these cans?  Will you be using an amp------Dont think i would buy a amp

 

What is the format of your music and other sounds you will putting into these cans?-----mp3   256 kbps mosty ---Metal

 

Describe the sound signature that you are seeking? ----i have no idea about this here....


Let me know which would be a good headphones...


There is no one clear answer, you will have to decide what suits you the best.

 

Get the Shure SRH 840 for clarity.

 

Don't get any V-Moda below the M80.  But if you can find it in your price range, get it for the bass & build quality.

 

Get the HiFi 780 for bright cans with good bass and slam.

What, a dac that accepts a digital input via a line in ?  Last I checked every dac in the world used spdif, usb, aes, or i2s.  Maybe the great fiios company has come up with a new standard.

 

And how exactly is the ipod supposed to turn an analog signal from the headphone jack or the line out which is also analog into a digital one?

Yes--they're both closed cans.  You might want to check the buying guides that are linked in the opening post of this thread.

Dunno on your first question, but as for the second running LOD to USB keeps the signal digital from an iPod or iOS device. That will then run to something like this to perform the functions of a DAC instead of the built in. But running a LOD cable that goes to a 1/8 will be analog. That's basically just used to bypass the built in amp in that case.

Looking to get either HD598, or DT990. Now I am plan on using The headphones for my console use and PC use. Console will be 360 and PS3. I was thinking of getting an Astro mixamp, so i could get the virtual 7.1 when gaming. I hear the DT990 pro has more bass, then the HD598. But which one has a more rich, fuller, crisper, nicer sound. Also would the Mixamp be able to power a 250 ohms DT990?

 

IF i got a filo e11 or e17 would i be able to get the the 600 ohm premium DT990?

 

First headphone so want to make sure i get the right one. Still cant decide between HD598 and the DT990.

I want to upgrade my full-size cans; Open or closed are fine with me - I don't really have a preference, but open will obviously have an advantage in the soundstage. I like neutrality and I listen to classic jazz, rock, classical, and I really enjoy acoustic rock/folk. Not a basshead at all, but I do enjoy a bit of rumble once in awhile. I certainly am not averse to some tight, controlled, and impactful bass. I do like detail and a large soundstage, but I don't tolerate sibilance very well at all. My budget is a maximum of $300. I currently have Koss DJ100s for my full-size headphones and I do like them. If you have any good ideas, let me know. I'm considering Beyerdynamic DT 880 Pros (250 Ohm), but I want to get a few more recommendations first. Thanks, y'all.

I apologize, I must have misread something once. Thanks for the correction

Looking for something with a fuller sound...

 

I presently have HD595s, and ATH-A900s.  I drive them with the XONAR Phoebus sound card with onboard amp.  

 

I like both cans separately, but I would like something that has a more robust sound that is still warm.  A little more bass could be a plus.  I am currently looking at the Q701s, AH-D2000s, DT 990s, --- but I am open to anything really.

 

Any thoughts are appreciated.

Hey guys,
thought i'd use some help with a choice of cans. 
 
I am looking for a closed set of  cans used in a library setting. What I would be doing is bringing these with me in my bag and taking them out for long study sessions. 
 
- Most important attribute is comfort.
- They must be circumaural.
- I want to be able to use these in a library so there must be 0 leakage.
- Not too big (no Brainwavz hm5)
- SQ can be somewhat comprimised for the above since I will be concentrating on work. However I would prefer no treble peaks and not too big of a midbass hump.
Can be placed in a bag with books / decent durability
 
I am listening to alot of the violin these days and through hd650s the sound is very good to my ears. I don't think I can stand listening to violin for extended periods on a headphone with peaks. Other than the violin I listen to pretty much anything so versatility would be nice.
 
The lower the price, the better. If I were to give a number, maybe under 200?
 
If there is a very good headphone that costs way more but checks the criteria, please mention it no matter the price i'd be open to consider alternatives and save up for them. Thanks very much!
 
Forgot to mention I have the E11 as a portable amp if it is necessary.

Hey peeps,

 

My brother is looking for a new pair of headphones, and he is stuck on the VMODA Crossfade LP Stealth limited edition. He wants a user friendly, great sounding, stylish, and bassy headphones. His budget is $100. Any recommendations? He wants closed and detachable cable.

 

Thanks!

Does any idevice owners have any brilliant idea of making the volumes of songs similar or the same? Cuz the itunes soundcheck is utterly useless... It sucks...

Glad to help--but it's up to you to decide between two good cans that offer attributes that sometimes differ.  If you don't know yet which to select, I suggest that you read some reviews of both on this and other sites. No one knows yourneeds, desires and preferences as well as you do.

Don't know the about your budget or how powerful your on-board amp is, but you might want to give the HD 650 and HE-400 a good look.  The Q701 is also an excellent can and value.  However, it is not known for either its warmth or bass.
